A Massachusetts state court awarded a plaintiff $3 million in damages in a case against a process service company he claimed never served him with subpoenas.

The June 6 final judgment follows a December 2007 default order against the process service company for failing to appear at depositions. Final damages total $1 million for lost wages and compensation, pain and suffering and severe emotional distress and harm to the plaintiff’s reputation. The court tripled the award under the Massachusetts Consumer Protection Act. The court also awarded $140,000 in interest, more than $165,000 for attorney fees and costs. Lines v. Stokes & Levin, No. SUCV2007-01653 (Suffolk Co., Mass., Super Ct.)
